‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 7
———————————————————

When I started as a ‘new contributor’ to this blog I had shared a Kishore Kumar song from the movie ‘Paanch Dushman-1973’ to Atul ji.
I was in fact not aware of this song before that, and it was my boss then, who, noticing my interest in music, had asked me about the link of the song.
He in turn was asked by one of his friends who was looking for this song. Both were aware of few lines of this song and about the singer only, and nothing more – like about the movie’s name etc. I was successful in locating this song. Later I also shared it to the blog. This song was posted on the blog on October 03, 2012.

The movie ‘Paanch Dushman-1973’ itself was an ‘obscure movie’ for me. However, our inhouse encyclopaedia Shri. Arunkumar ji, in his comment on this post, had mentioned in detail about this movie which I am reproducing here below.

October 03, 2012
Atul ji,
PAANCH DUSHMAN-1973 was a film made under the banner of M.G.O. Films, Bombay. It was produced by Manu Narang but Directed by Bimal Rawal. The music of R.D. Burman had lyrics from Majrooh. There were 6 songs,3 solos and 3 duets. Solos were by KK-2 and Rafi-1,Duets of Asha/KK-2 and Lata/KK-1.The other songs are better than the above song.
The cast was Lead pair of MANU NARANG and RAJEE,both were first timers.Manu Narang was the son of S.D.Narang, the famous Producer/Director, who himself was a dashing Hero in the 40s.Films like KHAZANCHI-1941 were big hits-not because of Narang, but because of superb Debut by SHAMSHAD Begum in Hindi films. She had sung ALL 9 song-Solos-in the Debut film and created a sort of record, unbroken till today.
Manu Narang was one time the famed Playboy of the 50s and 60s and was in the news for all wrong reasons. There are umpteen stories of him and his Rang reliayan…………
No one can predict why a Hindi film succeeds. This film PAANCH DUSHMAN had the essential ingredients of a successful Masala film. It had a good looking youthful new lead pair, one of the best Music Directors, Best singers, very good story line,5 Villains (Pran, Shatrughna, Manmohan, Vinod khanna and Prem Chopda),
6 comedians (Mehmood, Mukri, Mohan choti, Agha, Sunder and Bramhachary),2 Cabaret dancers (Aruna Irani and Helen) an eternal weeping Maa-Baap (Durga Khote and Nazir Hussain), but HARD LUCK! This murder mystery did not succeed…..
This period in Hindi films was of stories of Smugglers, desh ke Dushman etc. Accordingly, the storyline went like…
Sunil (Manu Narang) is accused of murdering his own brother Raju and a Prostitute. He and his lover Reeta (Rajee) learn that the real motive of the murder was Diamonds. So, to tap the real murderer, Sunil poses as a Dimond merchant cum a Prince. The 5 villains are lured who go after the best Diamonds that he has. Finally, with the help of his friends, lover and a helping Police Inspector (Jagdish Raj), the real culprit is captured.
Despite dances, drama and mystery, fight and little weeping by Hero’s crippled parents, the public showed its back to the film and very quickly, the film went in hiding.

In later years this movie was re-released in ‘1987’ with the title as ‘Daulat Ke Dushman. Though its music was created by none other than our beloved Pancham Da, this movie remained a not-so familiar movie for me.

“Paanch Dushman’ (alias ‘Daulat Ke Dushman) was directed by Bimal Rawal. It was produced by Manu Narang. It had Manu, Rajee, Aruna Irani, Sunder, Mukri, Mohan Choti, Durga Khote, Nassir Hussain, Sujata, Yograj, Jagdish Raj, Brahmachari, Agha, Helen, and Mehmood.
Story, screenplay, and dialogues of this movie were written by Dr Balkishan Mauj.

Editing of this movie was done by H.B. Pathare.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.01.1973. (This movie will turn ‘fifty’ next year 😊)

Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, and Asha Bhonsle, and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie had seven songs (six plus one added later) written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by R.D. Burman.

(Note: – The ‘Addenda’ of HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) mentions that ‘this movie was later released in 1987 with the title ‘Paanch Dushman’ ‘alias’ ‘Daulat Ke Dushman’, with this additional song ‘Sonaa chaandi jhoothhi daulat, sachchi daulat pyaar … sung by Manna Dey.)

(*appears as first song in the movie in the background of titles)

In 2015 I got my first copy of HFGK i.e., HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) but I had never gone through other songs of this movie since then. Also, they were not available then. Now songs of this movie are uploaded by music lovers and we can now listen to all songs of this movie.

Recently while browsing through the blog, I noticed that only one song of this movie was posted in 2012. Soon this movie will be completing its ‘ten years’ run on the blog without adding the second song. So, I checked and found today’s song which is sung by Rafi Saab. This is the only song sung by him in this movie and that fits the bill for my series of ‘Pancham-Rafi Songs’ where I have discussed songs where Rafi Saab had sung only one song in the movie where music was composed by R.D. Burman.

When I listened to today’s song for this post and listened to its’ link with dialogues, I immediately identified the voice of Mehmood. So, yes! this is a song of Rafi Saab sung for Mehmood.

Let us now enjoy today’s song in Rafi Saab’s voice singing for Mehmood. The song is picturised on Mehmood and Aruna Irani.

Here is this entertaining song …

Blog Day :

4858 Post No. : 16648

Today, November 5, 2021 is the 13th Remembrance Day of producer-director, B R Chopra. I admire him for his courage to make films on sensitive and socially relevant issues at a time when most of other producers would have avoided such issues. As far as I know, B R Chopra became the director without working under any one of the well-known directors of his time or even working in any other departments of the film making which is laudable.

Baldev Raj Chopra (22/04/1914 – 05/11/2008) was born in Rahon village in Ludhiana district of Punjab. His father was working in the Public Works Department in Lahore. So, most of his childhood, school and college education were done in Lahore. As a teenager, he was fascinated by films. After the completion of M A in English literature from Punjab University, he took a job as a film journalist for a film magazine, ‘Cine Herald’ which was published from Lahore so that he connects with the film personalities. Over a period of time, he took over the management of the magazine which he managed until 1947.

Just a couple of months before the partition, some friends of B R Chopra’s father suggested him to make a film which they would finance. So, he started his first film, ‘Chandni Chowk’ based on a story by I S Johar. G A Chishti was to be the music director and Khayyam, his assistant. Unfortunately, the film had to be abandoned in the wake of communal riots following the partition. B R Chopra along with his family migrated to Delhi and resumed working as a film journalist for some time. However, his heart was in the film making.

B R Chopra shifted to Mumbai with most of his joint family members sometime in 1948. With the pooling of all the resources from the family, he co-produced and directed ‘Karwat’ (1949) which bombed at the box office. After this, he became apprehensive about making one more attempt in film making. It was one of his friends who bumped in B R Chopra at a café and assured him that he would arrange the finance provided B R Chopra directed the film. That was how the film ‘Afsaana’ (1951) happened which he co-produced and directed based on a story written by I S Johar. The film was a box office success.

B R Chopra co-produced and directed his next two films, ‘Shole’ (1953) and his stalled film of 1947 – ‘Chaandni Chowk’ (1954) with his friend and partner financing these films. While ‘Shole’ (1953) did the average business, ‘Chaandni Chowk’ (1954) was a box office success.

In 1955, with the death of his partner, their joint venture in film production was dissolved. B R Chopra set up his own film production banner, B R Films. The banner’s logo had an interesting text in Latin, ‘Ars longa vita brevis’, meaning ‘Art is long, life is short’. The banner produced its first film, ‘Ek Hi Raasta’ (1956) with a theme of widow remarriage. It was a bold decision on the part of B R Chopra to produce and direct a film with such a sensitive subject in his maiden venture. But the risk paid off. The film scored a box office success.

B R Chopra produced and directed his next film, ‘Naya Daur’ (1957) with a theme of ‘man versus machine’. This was the film, with which Sahir Ludhianvi’s association with B R Films started as a full-pledged lyricist which continued until his death in 1980 with some break during 1976-79. In ‘Sadhna’ (1958), he took the subject of rehabilitation of a prostitute. In ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (1959), B R Chopra portrayed the issues concerning the children born out of wedlock. In this film, B R Chopra entrusted the direction to his younger brother, Yash Chopra which was his maiden film as a director. Another brother, Dharam Chopra debuted as a full-time cinematographer with this film. Both these films were highly successful on the box office front.

B R Chopra experimented with his first songless film, ‘Kaanoon’ (1960) which focused on the capital punishment based on the eye witness and questioned whether one man’s words should cost another man’s life. It was a daring effort on the part of B R Chopra to produce the songless film especially at a time when the film songs had become one of the main ingredients for the box office success of the films. Later, he also produced another songless film, ‘Ittefaaq’ (1969) which happened to be last film B R Chopra and Yash Chopra worked together.

‘Gumraah’ (1963) was a personal triumph for B R Chopra as a director for his matured handling of a theme of extra-marital affair. He was successful in garnering sympathy for all the three protagonists of the film – Ashok Kumar as husband, Mala Sinha as his cheating wife and Sunil Dutt as the lover of Mala Sinha. By the way, in the same year (1963), ‘Ye Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke’ (1963) was released with a same theme.

‘Waqt’ (1965) was B R Chopra’s first colour. multi-starer and a high budget film. The film was directed by Yash Chopra. The usual ‘lost and found’ formula got reinvented with this film with sleek screen-play and dialogues. For the first time, a B R Film had elaborate sets and high glamour quotients. This film set the trend for Yash Chopra when he produced and directed films under his own banner.

During his 5 decades of association with Hindi films, B R Chopra produced 35 films and directed 20 films. Some of the major films he produced were ‘Hamraaz’ (1967), ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’ (1969), ‘Daastaan’ (1973), a remake of ‘Afsaana’ (1951), ‘Dhund’ (1973), ‘Zameer’ (1974), ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ (1975), ‘Karm’ (1977), ‘Pati, Patni Aur Woh’ (1978), ‘The Burning Train’ (1979), ‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu’ (1980), ‘Nikkah; (1982), ‘Mazdoor’ (1983), ‘Tawaif’ (1984) ‘Aawaam’ (1987), ‘Kal Ki Aawaaz’ (1992), ‘Baaghbaan’ (2003), ‘Baabul’ (2006), ‘Bhootnath’ (2008) etc.

In 1972, Yash Chopra separated from B R Films and established his own banner, Yash Raj Films. This separation seems to have affected B R Films as most of his film made after Yash Chopra’s exit from B R Films, did not reach the level of successes as his earlier films got. However, B R Chopra undertook a mammoth work of TV serial ‘Mahabharat’ for Doordarshan with 94 episodes which were telecast during 1988-90. ‘Mahabharat’ became one of the most successful TV serials which was high TRP ratings even on the repeat telecasts.

‘Baaghbaan’ 2003) was a sort of a ‘come back’ film for B R Films followed by ‘Baabul’ (2006). However, B R Films could not sustain the new success as both B R Chopra and his son, Ravi Chopra passed away in 2008 and 2014 respectively. After ‘Bhootnath’ (2008), B R Films have not produced any film.

B R Chopra was conferred with Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1998 in recognition of his contribution to the growth and development of Indian cinemas. He was awared Padma Bhushan in 2001.

‘Ek Hi Raasta’ (1956) was the first film produced and directed by B R Chopra under his own banner, B R Films. The star cast included Ashok Kumar, Meena Kumari, Sunil Dutt, Yashodhara Katju, Ravikant, Manik Kapoor, Uma Dutt, Nazir Kashmiri, Radhakishen etc. Kumkum and Radhika were the guest actors in the film.

The film had 8 songs (including one multiple version) of which 7 songs have already been covered on the Blog, the details of which are as under:

On the occasion of 13th Remembrance Day of B R Chopra, I present a song ‘kaisi lagi jaaye to jaaye jiya’ from ‘Ek Hi Raasta’ (1956) rendered by Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar. The song is written by Majrooh Sultanpuri which is set to music by Hemant Kumar. It is a dance song in which Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar sing for Kumkum and Radhika respectively.

With this song, all the songs from ‘Ek Hi Raasta’ (1956) have been covered on the Blog.

Note: The early life sketch of B R Chopra is based on his interview recorded in 1995 after he was conferred ‘Filmfare Life Time Achievement Award’. The interview was published on April 4, 1997 in rediff.com.

Pancham’s Music – Eighties (1981-1990) -4 (1984)
————————————————

In today’s post we move on to Pancham’s music in 1984.

Pancham continued entertaining his audience by composing good music in this year ‘1984’ too. There were as many as seventeen movies (released) in this year 1984, where the music was composed by Rahul Dev Burman or our beloved Pancham Da.

The list of these seventeen movies is as listed below.

17 Zameen Aasmaan Bharat Rangachari Anjaan 14.05.1984 1 of 5 songs posted

In-spite of composing good music and giving some timeless classics in some of the above movies, none of the song from the above movies appeared in the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala’ that year of 1984.

Songs of ‘Hero-1983’, ‘Sharaabi-1984’ and ‘Tohfa-1984’ ruled the roost by securing number 1,2 and 3 respectively. Another song of ‘Tohfa-1984’ was on number four.

If I am asked to select the best of Pancham that year the album “Duniya-1984” certainly was the topper for me. It had a varied range of songs composed by Pancham – the foot tapping ‘tu chaand nagar ki shehzaadi’, taking you far from world ‘gehre halke, halke gehre’, the philosophical ‘phirte hain kab se dar-badar’, the entertaining ‘duniya bahut hi kamaal hai’, the party song ‘jhoomti raat jawaan’ and lovely one ‘teri meri zindagi pyaar bhari zindagi’. The lyrics of all the songs by Javed Akhtar were all magical.

The movie ‘Sunny’ (aur kya ahd e wafaa hote hain etc), ‘Zameen Aasmaan’, ‘Aawaaz’, ‘Ham Hain Laajawaab’, ‘Jhoothha Sach’ also have some good compositions by Pancham. But the albums mostly heard and were a run-away hits were songs from ‘Jawaani’ and ‘Manzil Manzil’. However, none of them made it to the ‘Binaca Geetmala annual list of 1984’.

Today we are going to listen to a song from the movie ‘Manzil-Manzil’. This song is picturised on Dimple Kapdadia and Sunny Deol who are lip-syncing for the voices of Asha Bhonsle and Shailendra Singh respectively.

This song has two parts, the first one is the duet, and second part is in the voice of Shailendra Singh which is the ‘third stanza’ of the duet repeated in slower version. This song stood at sixth rank in the ‘annual Binaca Geetmala of 1985’.

One song of ‘Manzil Manzil’ stood at rank twenty-three while one song from ‘Jawaani-1984’ ranked at number eleven and one song from the movie ‘Jhoothha Sach-1984’ appeared on in the annual list of Binaca Geetmala of 1985.

Let us have a look on the details of today’s movie now.

“Manzil Manzil” was directed by Nasir Hussain for his home productions ‘Nasir Hussain Films, Bombay’. Nasir Hussain was also the producer of this movie, and he wrote dialogues of this movie too.

This movie had Dimple Kapadia, Sunny Deol, Prem Chopra, Danny Dengzongpa, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Tariq, T.P. Jain, Rinku Jaiswal, Sajida, Surendra Pal, Raj Bibra, Abid Sayyad, V. Malhotra, Ahmed Khan, Moijuddin, Meghdoot, D.S. Rana, K.K. Raj, Ramesh Goyal, Naveen Kumar, Dolly Jena, Anuradha, Leena Das, Jazbel, Nihal Khan, Hemendra Sinha, Deval Raiji and others.

Actor Feroz made his debut in this movie.

Asha Parekh and Ravindra Kapoor make friendly appearance sin this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 26.09.1984.

Hullo Atuldom

“Pukaar” (2000) was a Rajkumar Santoshi directed and Surinder Kapoor, Boney Kapoor, and Bharat Shah production. It had dialogues and screenplay by Anjum Rajabali and Rajkumar Santoshi, lyricists were Majrooh Sultanpuri (who wrote four songs) and Javed Akhtar (wrote two songs). A R Rehman was the music director. The cast was headed by Madhuri Dixit, Namrata Shirodkar, Anil Kapoor; Farida Jalal, Girish Karnad, Om Puri, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Danny, Rohini Hattangadi, K D Chandran, Anjan Shrivastav, Govind Namdeo, Mukesh Rishi etc. in supporting roles. There was a surprise element in the cast, which I shall get to later in the post.

The movie was a fictional account of the terrorist problems plaguing India. We had Anil Kapoor playing Major Jaidev Rajvansh and Farida Jalal and Girish Karnad played his parents. Major Jaidev has Pooja (Madhuri Dixit) as his childhood friend who has been in love with him forever. The Major and his fellow officers manage to rescue a leading politician and also capture the terrorist (Abhrush played by Danny) who has masterminded the kidnapping of the politician (Govind Namdeo).

The movie had all the masala needed for calling itself a patriotic movie- terrorist (supposedly from Pakistan), corrupt politician, men in uniform who go beyond their prescribed calling in tracing/tracking the terrorist in spite of being severely wounded or even dying in the melee. The whole movie is set in some picturesque hill-town which has a colonial Town Hall where the climax takes place. The terrorists decide to blow up the town hall and its clock tower with the help of time-bombs and our severely wounded hero with his highly repentant girl friend (why the girl is repentant can be understood if one sees the movie)- who are both tied to structure- have all the time duration of the song/ event being held in the premises of the Town Hall to discover and deactivate the bombs.

We are having the song that is being staged during the climax with this post. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. On screen the person lip-syncing the song is Lata Mangeshkar herself (the surprise element that I wrote about earlier). I was awed when I saw the song for the first time ever all those years back – 21 years back to be exact. She was only 71 then. The song has The Lata Mangeshkar playing herself and singing this plaintive appeal to end all violence. She appears in her trademark saree with a group of kids who also emote the song rather well. We can see Girish Karnad and Farida Jalal in the audience and Danny stealthily making his way into the premises using forged ID card.

We all know that Lata didi (as the whole entertainment industry addresses her) had faced the camera at the beginning of her career. Recently I received this video of a Marathi song where she appears with her sisters in the group of children singing at a party. Our blog also has the first ever song in Hindi which was for the marathi movie “Gaja Bhaau” (1943).

Same date, last year, Atulji has taken up the daunting task of trying to list every single Hindi movie where Lata Mangeshkar has even ‘hummed’ a line. That series was kicked off with this post. That is material for about 64 posts and at the rate of one-post per week we reached post number 53 this Monday, the series kick started on her birthday, last year.

I may not be a huge fan of this “Bharat Ratna”, but I always try to sing her songs and admire the way she modulates her voice to suit the situation, actor and emotion of the song. I love many of the songs she has sung but will not sit to enlist them here.

Me, with my feeling of being a candle in front of such a huge personality, also try to send a post/song to wish this Nightingale lots of good health and cheer.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is one that I have been wanting to present on the blog for years. I have kept looking for its link on YouTube and finally found that someone has uploaded it in May 2019. Then I looked for the movie’s songs on our blog and found one song was posted with lyrics contributed by Avinashji.

In the comments to that song Prakshchandraji has written this about the movie:-

“Shubh Kaamna is a remake of famous Telugu hit movie “Shubh Lekha(1982) (directed by the same famous director K.Vishwanath) starring famous Telugu Hero (now turned into politician) Chiranjeevi and Sumalata. The film dealt with the Dowry system and Utpal Dutt`s acting in Shubh kaamna is very good. And the music of Pancham is also very good. Kiran Vairale acted very well. But I think, somehow the southern flavour of the movie was not accepted by northern audience. But I enjoyed the movie very much.”

Prakashji had also mentioned that the videos related to the movie are not easily available.

The movie had a cast of Rati Agnihotri, Kiran Vairale, Ashalata, Rakesh Roshan, Vinod Mehra (think it was a special appearance), Sujit Kumar, Utpal Dutt, Asrani, Omprakash, Satyen Kappu, and South actor Sudhakar played Utpal Dutt’s younger son and Kiran Vairale’s love interest. The songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. I had seen this movie with family at the time of its theatrical release; and loved the concept of the movie. There was something to do with Allwyn watch company in the movie and some portion of the movie was shot in the factory, if my memory is correct. Also the beaches of Andhra Pradesh served as location for much of the movie.

Today’s song is a stage song which has Rakesh Roshan singing at a cultural program at the college where Rati Agnihotri is a lecturer and Kiran Vairale (her sister) is a student. The song is in a few dialects(editor’s- it is in Bangla).

Today happens to be Rakesh Roshan’s birthdate. He started his career at 21 or 22 after the untimely death of his father -the music director Roshan. He began as assistant to director Mohan Kumar in films like ‘Anjaana’. He was recommended by Rajendra Kumar to Soodesh Kumar and he got a supporting role in ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani’ All through his acting career he has acted in many heroine-centric movies like ‘Paraya Dhan’, ‘Khoobsurat’, ‘Aankhon Aankhon Mein’, ‘Bahurani’, ‘Humari Bahu Alka’ etc. He played a few grey characters too as in ‘Jhootha Kahin Ka’, ‘Dil Aur Deewar’, ‘Daasi’, ‘Aakhir Kyon?’ etc. When he started his own production house his first movie was ‘Aap Ke Deewane’ which starred Tina Munim opposite two heroes- Rishi Kapoor and Rakesh Roshan. His next was ‘Kaamchor’ which had Jaya Prada as the central character. this was followed by ‘Jaag Utha Insaan’ and ‘Bhagwan Dada’ both of which had Sridevi in important roles. He turned a full-fledged filmmaker i.e. a producer director with ‘Khoon Bhari Maang’ which was on Rekha’s character. ‘Bahurani’ (1989) and ‘Aurat Aurat Aurat’ (1996) where the last movies where he had a substantial part to play. He has since been seen in guest appearances in ‘Koi Mil Gaya’, ‘Krrish’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’. He has been in the enterainment industry for 50 years now.

Here is wishing Rakesh Roshan lots of health and happiness as he turns 72.

Hullo Atuldom

July 31st. Important date for lovers of Bollywood sangeet. This date-41 years ago- music lovers lost a singer who was a wonderful human being. He went by the name Mohammad Rafi.

We used to have pages and pages written about the greatness of this legend’s voice, singing style, kind-heartedness, etc in the pre-internet era. Then various people took up blogging as a passion and any blog on Bollywood and its music will definitely have atleast a few posts on this great singer. AM I COMPLAINING? NO NOT AT ALL. Because as our very own Rajaji has said in many of his posts ‘one cannot tire of writing or reading about Rafisaab and his persona’.

Similarly, the music channels on satellite television and FM radio will try to outdo each other in playing popular songs sung by Rafisaab. Again, I am stating a statement of fact and not complaining. Because any fan of Bollywood music can never tire of hearing and humming songs sung by this legend who had a smooth and soothing voice.

I have never tried making a personal list of favourite Rafi-songs as I fear that I might miss out on some gem which I have always loved. Maybe my list will start with ‘yaahhooo’, or ‘tel maalish’ on one day and another day may see me start listening from ‘chaand mera dil’ or ‘chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko’. Probably I may add a less heard song like ‘mann mora baawra’, ‘tumne mujhe dekha’, ‘hai duniya usiki zamaana usika’ and by the time I finish listening to all the songs in the list I may have reached ‘kaan mein jhumka taal pe thumka’ and ‘kitna pyaara vaada’ or ‘vaada karle saajna’ with a few soulful numbers in between. I think I should also clarify that the songs that I have mentioned are only a sample of the kind of songs I love to hear and not an exhaustive list.

Now I was looking for a song that would also help me wish a yesteryear actress on turning 74. She was born just as India was gaining Independence from the British rule. She was born in Mumbai to parents of Irani origin. Her sister (Malika) also was an actress and married to Randhawa (brother of Dara Singh); I think these are hints that point towards Mumtaz Askari famous as Mumtaz. Mumtaz’s journey in the movie industry was a tough one starting as a child in 1958, going on to teenage roles in early 60s. As an adult her first role in an A-grade movie was in O P Ralhan’s ‘Gehra Daag’ where she played one of Rajendra Kumar’s sister. Years later, when she was a commercially successful heroine, she was cast as Rajendra Kumar’s heroine in “Taangewala” which released in 1972.

“Taangewala” was a Dimple Films’ presentation and directed by Naresh Kumar meaning it was Rajendra Kumar’s home production. It had songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and tuned by Naushad. Mohd. Rafi, Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle and Lata mangeshkar were the playback singers used. The cast included Sujit Kumar, Bhagwan, Kanhaiyalal, Mohan Choti, Kumud Chuggani, I S Johar, Kaamini Kaushal Mehmood Jr. in addition to Mumtaz and Rajendra Kumar.

It had about seven songs of which the blog has four. Today we shall have the fifth one. Unfortunately I have not seen the movie or been able to lay my hands on a video link. My guess is this Asha- Rafi duet is picturised on the lead pair.

Here is Wishing Mumtaz health and happiness (heard that she is a Cancer survivor) and remembering the one and only Rafisaab who could do justice to any song and was sincere towards every composition that he sang making every song a gem.

This should be Rafi- Asha Bhonsle duet number 547.


Song-Aisa phanda maare gori dil pe tera pyaar (Taangewaala)(1972) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

aisa phanda maare gori dil pe tera pyaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
saajan tere nainon se jab naina hue chaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar

din ye judaai ka re sahaa nahin jaaye
raaton ko akele hamse rahaa nahin jaaye
din ye judaai ka re sahaa nahin jaaye
o raaton ko akele hamse rahaa nahin jaaye
jaane kab
jaane kab sunegi tu dil ki pukaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
o aisa phanda maare gori dil pe tera pyaar
ke phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar

tere bina bhatke yeh chadhti jawaani
paagal meri bindiya paayaliya deewaani
o tere bina bhatke yeh chadhti jawaani
paagal meri bindiya paayaliya deewaani
aisi bhi kya
arre aisi bhi kya aayi hai jawaani pe bahaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar
saajan tere nainon se jab naina huye chaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar

ab to leke chal kahin saathi mere mann ke
chal mere angana dulhan meri ban ke
ho ab to leke chal kahin saathi mere mann ke
o chal mere angana dulhan meri ban ke
doli leke ae ae
doli leke aaja re tu kal mere dwaar
kaleje mein dans gaye bichhua hazaar

ki phaansi pe latke jiyara hamaar
kaleje mein
dans gaye bichhua hazaar

ke phansi pe latke jiyara hamaar

“Parvarish” (1977) was one of the four movies that was directed by Manmohan Desai in 1977. It was produced by A A Nadiadwala. It had a small starcast headed by Shammi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Shabana Azmi, Indrani Mukherjee, Dev Kumar, Tom Alter, Yusuf Khan (Zebisco of Amar Akbar Anthony which also released in 1977) plus some of Manmohan Desai’s favourite actors of that year viz. Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Kadar Khan and Amjad Khan. Kadar Khan also was in-charge of the dialogues.

The movie’s songs were written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Laxmi Pyare. Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, Shailendra Singh and Lata- Asha- Usha were the playback singers used for the six songs of the movie, five of which are there on the blog as under.

Song Date of posting Remarks
Aji thahr zara thhahro 7 February 2009 It was a farmaish by Rajaji before he became a contributor; has 14 comments

Ye oonche mahal suhaane sab janta ka hai 29 November 2019 shortest post for a song from this movie

High time we took this movie, which first appeared on the blog in 2009, to “Yyiippeeee” station. And July 8th is a good date to do so as it is the 63rd birthday of the sweet-cute-charming-elegant-beautiful Neetu Singh a.k.a Baby Sonia of the gorgeous smile. She was born in Delhi in a Sikh family with the birth name Harneet Kaur. She began as a child actor in the late ’60s as baby Sonia with movies like ‘Suraj’, ‘Dus Lakh’, ‘Do Dooni Chaar’ etc. was seen as an adolescent in ‘Pavitra Paapi’ ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahani’ etc before turning to adult roles with ‘Rickshawala’ ‘Yaadon Ki Baraat’ etc in 1973.

She had a good successful career of nearly 10-12 years as an adult before she bade goodbye to stardom to raise a family. We all know she is Bahu of the Kapoor-Khandaan, Mrs. Rishi Kapoor, mother of actor Ranbir Kapoor, etc.. But she is also Neetu Singh (Kapoor to the present generation of moviegoers) and we are all her fans. Here is wishing her good health and cheer. Happy Birthday Baby Sonia.

Today’s song is a stage song where Amjad Khan is the chief guest and Neetu and Shabo (Desai didn’t break his head in naming his heroines) are the qawwali artists on the stage and use the situation to ‘take shots’ at Amjad Khan (ex. daku Mangal Singh) who was the cause of the death of their parents (Ram Sethi and Chand Usmani in blink and miss appearances). If I remember correctly, this was the song just before the climax of the movie. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Usha Mangeshkar.

Hullo Atuldom

“Andaaz Apna Apna” which released in November 1994 was a comedy, laugh riot, and a ‘comedy of errors’ which had nothing to do with the original ‘comedy of errors’. I am a huge fan of this movie and so is every member of my family. There is always a smile playing on the lips, waiting to turn into a burst of laughter, whenever we discover the movie on any channel. The comedy was in the scenes and dialogues. The movie had stand-out characters that have stayed in public memory after all the intervening 27 years.

Think of Deven Verma being hoodwinked by his ‘get-rich-quick-scheming’ son Aamir Khan (playing Amar) and you smile or grin. Specially when the son tells the father “main aaj bahut khush hoon” and the father replies “tu jab bhi khush hua hai mera kuch na kuch nuksaan hua hai” and proceeds to list a few incidents. Then we have the barber Jagdeep getting similar treatment from his son Salman Khan (playing Prem). The scene that happens between Mehmood (who plays a casting agent) and Jagdeep is another standout. One thing about this comedy movie was we had seasoned players like Deven Verma, Jagdeep, Mehmood and Aamir Khan who (imho) thought making faces (contorting is not the right word) and Salman Khan who thought saying ‘aila’ in a squeaky tone was comedy. The ladies were spared as they didn’t need to be comic as also the father character of Paresh Rawal. Shakti Kapoor’s character ‘crime-master Gogo’ was more comic than scary as was Paresh Rawal’s Teja (character). Crime-master Gogo’s oneliner (Takiya kalaam) “aaya hoon kuch na kuch leke jaoonga” used to be oft-quoted in my family. The story tried to create comedy by giving the male lead actors filmy names of Amar and Prem trying to pay tribute to the 70s classic.
To have an idea about the movie we should read this post which was written by SURPRISE! (re-visit the post to find out)

Tushar Bhatia was the music director of this movie which had 6 songs. As per this article two songs were deleted from the movie to give it a better look (I suppose). Majrooh Sultanpuri was the lyricist and Asha Bhonsle, Abhijeet, S P Balasubramanyam, were the playback singers with a few new names Behrouz Chatterjee, Mangal Singh, Vicky Mehta which were heard for the first time in Bollywood.

Today’s song has Salman Khan serenading the millionaire, heiress Raveena with a song and dance in the middle of the night but with a tiny “dholak” instead of a guitar or violin (as is the general norm for this kind of situations). It is only at the end of the song that Salman (Prem) realizes that the lady with him is Karisma and not Raveena. We have Amar (Aamir Khan) first thinking that Raveena is the one who is responding to Prem but his fears are laid to rest when he sees Raveena outside his window. Then we have Shehzad Khan (a spitting image of his father Ajit) and Viju Khote (playing helpers around the household) also enjoying this midnight entertainment.

Incidentally, the girls switch names, in the movie, to test prospective grooms so Karisma Kapoor who is the actual Raveena (daughter of the millionaire) introduces Raveena Tandon as Karisma (who is the daughter of the millionaire’s munim). So, there is a bit of confusion in the minds of Amar and Prem once the girls reveal their true names and identity. Hope the situation is clear and we now get on to the song which is sung by Asha (Tai) and SPB (Balu Sir)

With this post we also wish Lolo on turning a year younger. Lolo which is the pet name of Karisma Kapoor, the first person from the fifth generation of the Kapoor Khandan to step into Bollywood and carve a niche for herself. She made a name for herself enacting a variety of roles from plain inane to high voltage emotional characters. We saw her play a serious character in the song which was posted two years back. Today we will see her with a cute and endearing smile.

Hullo Atuldom

This is one of the posts which pays tribute to one great and wishes happy birthday to another.

With this we also will be taking this movie a step closer to YYIIPPEEEEHOOD!!!

“Doosra Aadmi” directed by Ramesh Talwar & produced by Yash Chopra had a cast headed by Rakhee- Neetu Singh- Rishi Kapoor with a supporting cast of Deven Verma, Sheetal, Satyen Kappu, Gita Siddharth, and Parikshat Sahni in a special appearance and Shashi Kapoor in guest appearances. It had songs penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri and tuned by Rajesh Roshan. The movie had six songs of which the blog has the following four.

Song Date of post
Kya mausam hai 17 september 2008
Maathe pe lagaike bindiya 18 september 2008
Aao manaayen jashne muhabbat 24 may 2019
Jaan meri roothh gayi 24 may 2020

We can see this movie began its journey on the blog in 2008 with songs posted on 17th and 18th of September, and then one song each in the last two years on Rajesh Roshan’s birthday or Majrooh Sultanpuri’s (Asrar ul Hassan Khan being the birthname) remembrance day both being on 24th of May.

Here is today’s song which is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar and filmed on a Honeymooning Timsi (Neetu Singh) and Karan Saxena (Rishi Kapoor). It is shot in the snow-clad locales of Kashmir and we see the couple enjoying the various snow-time activities possible- sledging in a horse-drawn sledge, camping and campfire, etc.

With this song we add one more of Lata Mangeshkar’s songs from 1977 which according to this post of Atulji was 44 songs from 96 recorded that year from 50 movies (with Lata Mangeshkar songs in them) released. Since then we have added two more and as of today the tally of Lata-songs of 1977 stands at 46 on the blog.

Song-Nazron se keh do pyaar mein milne ka mausam aa gaya (Doosra Aadmi)(1977) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

nazron se keh do pyaar mein milne ka mausam
ho milne ka mausam aa gaya
nazron se keh do pyaar mein milne ka mausam
ho milne ka mausam aa gaya
baahon mein baahen daal ke khilne ka mausam
ho khilne ka mausam aa gaya

nazron se keh do pyar mein milne ka mausam
ho milne ka mausam aa gaya

Kannu Kannu
arre baaba jaanu
ssshhhh
roko na tum mujhe

zara suno toh oooo

iss pyaar se tera haath laga
lehra gaye gesu mere
iss pyaar se tera haath laga
lehra gaye gesu mere
arre kuchh bhi nazar aata hi nahin
masti mein mujhe tujh se pare

kaandhe pe
kaandhe pe meri zulf ke dhalne ka mausam
ho dhalne ka mausam aa gaya
baanhon mein baanhen daal ke khilne ka mausam
ho khilne ka mausam aa gaya

aaaa
tum mil bhi gaye phir bhi dil ko
kya jaane kaisi aas hai
tum mil bhi gaye phir bhi dil ko
kya jaane kaisi aas hai

tum paas ho phir bhi honthon mein
jaane kaisi pyaas hai
honthon ki
honthon ki thandi aag mein jalne ka mausam
hey ae jalne ka mausam aa gaya

nazron se keh do pyaar mein milne ka mausam
ho milne ka mausam aa gaya

Hullo Atuldom

Here is a song from “Chambal Ki Raani” (1979) which was directed by Radhakant produced by Raghunandan (censor certificate on 2.11.1979).

It had a cast of Mahendra Sandhu, Bindu, Dara Singh, Jagdeep, Narendranath, Chand Usmani, Amjad Khan, Kamal Kapoor & Urmila Bhatt (in special appearances), etc. It had music by Naushad. Jan Nissar Akhtar & Majrooh Sultanpuri were the lyricists. The movie had only Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd. Rafi for playback.

The movie was dedicated to Jan Nissar Akhtar and Krishan Chandar. To find out who Krishan Chandar was I looked up the copy of the movie available on YouTube. He was the writer of this movie.

The title is a giveaway of the story of the movie viz. Dacoit story. What I saw on Youtube only confirms this. The movie has a pre-titles scene of Chambal -the river- lamenting the state of affairs in her region. There is a raid by the dacoit party led by Dara Singh in a village, set in pre-independence era, where a informer is shown to be shot dead by Daaku Lakhan Sardar. Whereas Daaku Ajmer Singh played by Amjad Khan is shown to loot people by hoodwinking people into thinking that he is a cop. So that then establishes the story which will eventually turn out like all the other Daaku movies of that time:- lots of horses, chases, kothas, rakhi sister, a few songs to divert the attention of the opposition etc.

Bindu played Chameli a dancer (what else) and has atleast two dance numbers which are in the mujra genre (again -what else!!Emoji). The song in this post was rather popular in its time and even now played on Prasar Bharati’s Vividh Bharati radio channel very often. It is one of the songs which I have heard for a lifetime without knowing what movie or any other details till today. It is sung by Lata, written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Naushad Ali was the composer.

We are paying tribute to the legendary composer with this post on his 15th remembrance anniversary. I am not competent enough to comment on his works but over the years I have discovered that I loved many of his songs during my growing-up years without being aware about their creators. Songs like “suhaani raat dhal chuki”, “mere mehboob tujhe mere mohabbat ki kasam”, “awaz de kahaan hai”, :jawaan hai mohabbat” etc and hundred others from the late 40s and of the following decades. It was much later I learnt who the music director for these gems were. Possibly, by that time, Naushad Saab had stopped being on centre stage of Bollywood music but he still came up with scores in movies like “Ganwaar”, “Pakeezah”, “Taangewala” etc at the rate of one movie every other year or so. He even produced a few movies and “Taj Mahal- an eternal love story” in 2005 directed by Akbar Khan was the last released work that is a long journey of 65 years as his first independent work, according to various sites on the internet, was in 1940. He began by assisting Ustaad Jhande Khan, Mushtaq Hussain and such big names of that time before “Prem Nagar” happened in 1940.

Thanking the legend for the legacy that he has left behind.

jawaani ho gayi dushman
jawaani ho gayi dushman
ho maare bichhuwa jaisa dank
jawaani mein akelapan
jawaani mein akelapan
ho maare bichhuwa jaisa dank
